Recycling 2.0: Exploring EPR for Packaging and Printed Mater

2012 Recycling Symposium

Increasing recycling, shifting costs from governments to private sector, and improving recycling systems were the topics discussed at KAB’s 2012 Recycling Symposium, “Enhancing the Recycling of Packaging and Printed Materials – Exploring EPR.”

The program featured representatives from all sectors of the recycling value chain as well as experts on Extended Producer Responsibility (EPR) from around the globe. The goal of convening a multi-stakeholder group was to provide a forum for candid exploration of the issues -- merits, challenges and feasibility -- of an EPR-type approach.
